In Rīga, Sarkandaugava, a wall open for everyone has been unveiled so artists or curious beginners can decorate it with street art, Latvian Television reported on November 3.

The wall is located in a private area – in the creative block created this summer near the former factory Provodņiks.

Latvia has lacked legal places for graffiti artists to work for years. Artist Dainis Rudens said: "To be honest, this is the third officially accessible wall in Latvia [..] This wall will certainly remove some load from public room where drawings or unauthorized operations are taking place."

The wall near Provodņiks is 116 meters long.

The creative director of Provodņiks, Laura Upeniece, said: “We give street artists a platform to express themselves, and at the same time make this industrial environment a little more glamorous. They are good, and it is good for us to give street artists such a legal opportunity."

“The principle of the open wall is that as soon as it is open, it remains a living organism where everyone comes and draws, and no one is offended by anyone, as someone can draw over another's drawing because it is their place as much as the next one's. I also hope to see that it will constantly change, develop and improve,” Dainis Rudens said.
